In 1995 everything changed with the creation of the World Wide Web. Anything that could be digitized was digitized and entire industries changed. And with the digitization came tools to help everyone become a producer of digital content. From music to video, books to journalism, we pulled all the friction out of the content pipeline and democratized entire industries. But the industry we never talk about is the one that was already digital – software. Software was democratized as well....

The lens through which we view--and know--what it means to love, to be ourselves, and to connect with others is now backed by microchips and millions of lines of code. As our lives continue to become increasingly managed by our devices, we need to ask ourselves what we're gaining--and what we're giving up--by allowing technology into the spaces that make our hearts ache and that keep us up at night. This talk will weave together two narratives essential to many people: health and love. It will...

The open source software ecosystem has seen major changes since the term "open source" was coined and adopted 20 years ago. The scale and complexity of open source projects have increased, professional development practices like software testing at the project level have been introduced, and the infusion of money into development has created a different landscape for contributors and companies. In this modern world of open source software with the tremendous success in terms of...

Description Free and open source software has come a long way since their start decades ago. Today it's the default choice for just about every software development project and tech giants like Amazon, Apple, Google, and even Microsoft are using, contributing to, and releasing free and open source software. With its popularity for infrastructure and bootstrapping development, it's tempting to say that free and open source software has won, but it's premature to make that call. While it may have...

You could just throw the code up on a forge like GitHub or GitLab, but it’s unlikely to receive attention or provide much benefit to the company.

Description: 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of the term "open source" and the Open Source Initiative. What most people don't realise is that PHP pre-dates this by three years and has had a profound and lasting effect on the internet as we know it. But what sort of effect can you, personally, have on PHP?  In this keynote, VM Brasseur will cover:  What is F/OSS, where does PHP fit in, and why does this matter?  How to locate a F/OSS project to contribute to.  How to get started...

You’ve decided to take the plunge and contribute to free and open source software. Congratulations! You’re about to start a journey to a fascinating world. However, before you take that first step of your journey, you should learn a bit more about that world you’re looking to enter. Experienced free and open source contributors take a lot of terms and concepts for granted, but these things are a foreign language to first time contributors.

These days it seems everyone in technology is talking about free and open source software. Millions of people are doing more than just talk: they’re contributing, and you want to, too. Before you get started, answer one question: Why do you want to contribute to open source? It turns out, most people find it harder to answer this question than they were expecting. That answer, however, is completely vital to their success as they start out on their open source journey. Contributing to open...

Perhaps you're bored at your current job. Perhaps you're new to the tech job market. Perhaps your company lost funding and you were laid off. There are a million reasons why, but one common element: Sometimes we all have to play the job hunt game. And the game sucks. From unresponsive recruiters to pointless interview questions, a job hunt can be a demoralizing and dehumanizing process, but there are a lot of things which you can do to make it more productive and less stressful. Some of the...

Collaborative software building has its own special challenges: globally distributed teams, stakeholders who are coming from very different perspectives, and often a mix of paid and volunteer contributors. The good news is that there are lots of ways to improve a team’s communications and collective goal-setting as well as solid and reproducible ways to set expectations and build accountability without getting lost in the wilderness. The bad news is that it rarely works the way you expect...

Perhaps you're bored at your current job. Perhaps you're new to the tech job market. Perhaps your company lost funding and you were laid off. There are a million reasons why, but one common element: Sometimes we all have to play the job hunt game. And the game sucks. From unresponsive recruiters to pointless interview questions, a job hunt can be a demoralizing and dehumanizing process, but there are a lot of things which you can do to make it more productive and less stressful. Finding the...

They drop by, they fix their particular problem, they leave. They're the drive-through contributor. While, yes, we all would prefer that these people stick around and join the community, there's no denying that a good drive-thru contribution adds value to your project. A strong argument can be made that the more drive-thru contributors your project has, the healthier the project process and ecosystem. It shows that you've set up a process which is easy to understand, easy to follow, and which...

Warning: The first half of the audio has static every 11 minutes or so. The static only lasts 10-15 seconds each time. Perhaps you're bored at your current job. Perhaps you're new to the tech job market. Perhaps your company lost funding and you were laid off. There are a million reasons why, but one common element: Sometimes we all have to play the job hunt game. And the game sucks.

Projects fail in droves. Up to 90% of new businesses fail within 10 years. Screws fall out all the time; the world is an imperfect place. Just because it happens doesn’t mean we can’t do our best to prevent it or—at the very least—to minimize the damage when it does. As a matter of fact, embracing failure can be one of the best things you do for your project. Failure is a vital part of evolution. By learning to love failure we learn how to take the next step forward. Ignoring or...

Dana Jacobsen will give a talk on his number theory module. This is an early version of the talk for FOSDEM . This talk describes the history, design, and implementation details of a number theory module for Perl. With implementations for most functions in C, C+GMP, and Perl this offers speed on most platforms as well as portability. Comparisons will be made with tools such as Pari/GP, SymPy, SAGE, Primo, OpenPFGW, and others. The Perl ntheory module (aka Math::Prime::Util) offers a portable...

Managing is a skill which you can master just as you did programming. This session will introduce you to many of the skills and resources you’ll need to become a successful tech manager (and keep your team from wanting to string you up). The slides for this talk are also available in this item. Please see the included PDF. ‘Programmer’ and ‘Manager’ are two different titles for a reason: they’re two different jobs and skill sets. If you have managerial aspirations (or have had them...

Mike Friedman (aka @friedo ) is back from New York with another great talk for us: MongoDB's dynamic aggregation framework allows users to filter documents through arbitrary pipelines of powerful operators. It's like a Unix pipeline, but for structured big-data documents instead of text. This talk explains the aggregation framework and examines three real-world examples using real data sets and Perl.

Jeff Thalhammer teaches us how to manage CPAN modules effectively using Pinto : As software developers, we face lots of esoteric problems. And if you use Perl , then you have probably wrestled with "the CPAN problem". Shifting versions, incompatible interfaces, and test failures in dependent CPAN modules can suddenly break your application, leaving your team to chase bugs they didn't create. But managing CPAN modules doesn't have to be painful. With a private CPAN repository, you can...

Unicode & Everything (Perl, Javascript, Ruby, Python, DBs, web browsers...) The internet is binary, but it's far from ASCII. To embrace the full potential of your software, you must embrace the world. You must embrace Unicode. Unfortunately, Unicode is seen as prickly and unembraceable. Nothing could be further from the truth! SF.pm's own Joe Brenner gives us a tour of the Tower of Babel. While some of the examples will be in Perl, the concepts are–truly–universal. Come learn about:...
